Google Admits China Mistake

Oft criticized for supporting The Great Firewall, Google co-founder Sergi Brin admitted that when it comes to China, "perhaps now the principled approach makes more sense" in suggesting that the original justification that Google could "compromise [their] principles but provide ultimately more information for the Chinese and be a more effective service and perhaps make more of a difference" might be a loser. Here is a good list of the sites that Google.cn censors. With such censorship and amid growing concerns in America about the information sites like Google obtain from users - remember that Yahoo! helped put a Chinese journalist in jail - standing firm in its motto of "do no evil" will help return credibility here when it comes to privacy and the like.
